Andrew Garfield’s Denial Of Rumored ‘Spider-Man’ Return Is Pitiful Considering He’s Been Nominated For An Oscar

One of the worst kept secrets in Hollywood is the impending return of Spider-Mans past in this winter’s Spider-Man: No Way Home. Just a few weeks ago, Doc Ock actor Alfred Molina spilled the beans to Variety, as he literally confirmed he’s be returning as the iconic Spidey foe in No Way Home, the third solo Spider-Man film produced by Sony and Marvel Studios. Molina isn’t the only big-name actor set to appear, as it’s also been reported that Jamie Foxx will be returning as Electro and that Benedict Cumberbatch will reprise his role of Doctor Strange in the film.

As the old sayings go: the word’s on the street, the cat’s out of the bag, and the genie’s out of the bottle: old Spider-Man characters, from both the original Tobey Maguire franchise and the early-2010s Andrew Garfield franchise, will be appearing in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It’s fantastic, I know.

This is, however, what makes the following denial of such return from Andrew Garfield so utterly preposterous and oddly pitiful considering the man is an Academy Award-nominated actor. Just look at this dude — he looks like a rookie actor on a Zoom audition reenacting the tail end of the Fast Times at Ridgemont High bathroom scene.

To make matters more hilarious, lest we forget those reports from February when a scorned DoorDash driver in the Atlanta area tweeted about his interaction with Garfield, who just so happened to be in the city at the same time No Way Home was filming.

Spider-Man: No Way Home will hit theaters in the United States on December 17.
